History

MYRTLE  LODGE  No. 1

    Myrtle Lodge No. 1 was Instituted on November 16, 1873 in Salt Lake City with a chartering membership of 19 new Knights.
   Myrtle Lodge stood alone in Utah for 8 (eight) years before the charter of Ogden Lodge No. 2.  There were some very notable members of this Lodge. George F. Prescott ( a former Editor of The Salt Lake Tribune), as well as Brigham Young, Jr. (Son of Pioneer Brigham Young), and Earl O. Leatherwood (Utah's only to date Supreme Lodge Officer).  
   In our archives, we still have the original book of the first night of existence. In it, it has the very first "handwritten" By-Laws and Constitution of this Lodge. It's a wonderful piece of history.
